When Grace, along with her son Sigi, finally reunites with her husband Charles-Edouard and moves to France after being separated by the warm she loses ground when faced with exceedingly elegant French women, and is surprised by a world full of gossip, loves, and complicated affairs. But the surprises don't end there, for she will later discover that her husband has the tendency of pursuing every attractive woman that crosses his path. All of this makes her think that her marriage is about to be over and that surely the time has come to return to England. But that is when the blessing, Sigi, will take matters into his own hands. With her characteristic ability for satire, Nancy Mitford admirably reconstructs the environment, life, and people of the aristocratic circles of Paris and London. Beyond sophisticated characters, entertaining intrigue, and the exciting pace of biting conversations, this work evokes a world already long gone. "Cuando Grace, junto a su hijo Sigi, consigue reunirse con su marido Charles-Edouard e instalarse en Francia tras la separacion provocada por la guerra, pierde pie ante las elegantisimas mujeres francesas, y se ve sorprendida por un mundo de cotilleos, amantes y complicados affairs. Pero las sorpresas no acabaran ahi, pues mas tarde descubrira que su marido tiene la tendencia de perseguir a cuanta mujer atractiva que se cruce en su camino. Todo le hace pensar que su matrimonio esta a punto de terminar y que seguramente sea el momento de volver a Inglaterra. Pero sera entonces cuando la bendicion, el pequeno Sigi, tome cartas en el asunto. Con su caracteristica capacidad para la satira, Nancy Mitford reconstruye admirablemente el ambiente, la vida y las personas de los circulos aristocraticos de Paris y Londres. Mas alla de sofisticados personajes, divertidas intrigas y el ritmo trepidante de unos dialogos mordaces, esta obra es la evocacion de un mundo ya desaparecido."
